Today is Memorial Day, which is the summertime kickoff for most. Here's a playlist of 15 songs for your BBQ season.

It's Memorial Day, and just like the majority of people, you are probably grilling today. You know what you are throwing on the grill, and you know what your beverage of choice is. But what will you add to your playlist?

It's a dilemma we all have at some point in our lives, and sometimes you need a little assistance. Well, you're in luck.

HipHopDX has put together 15 '90s Hip Hop songs for you to rock out to on this National Holiday. With a mix of smooth and laid back tracks like "Sugar Hill" and up-tempo joints like "Scenario," this list covers all angles.

Drink Responsibly. Grill Responsibly. And make sure your speakers are cranked up!

  • okokwhat20402

    Mostly a good list, and as much I like Kool G Rap's stuff, this is the last thing I associate with a BBQ lol "Blass, you distract him while I go and whack him Entered through the back side of the bar and then attacked him He's screaming for his life, reaching for his wife Shot him in the back of the head and shanked him with a knife And that goes for anybody who's gotta pay they dues You lose, cause I got the Ill Street Blues"

    • Mike Trampe

    • Mike Tramp

      Of course everyone is going to have their favorites. These are the joints i really dig when i'm grillen & chillen.

      Raekwon's "Ice Cream" fits in because it is a track for the ladies. But you guys are right about G Rap, not really the summertime BBQ type of song. I would've put "Fu-Gee-La" by the Fugees instead.

    • Anonymous

      Lol same thing with Raekwon, wtf was Michael Trampe thinking

    • Mike Trampe

      More the "vibe" of the track than the lyrics. Just has a cool summer/chillen vibe to me.

  • Bellflower

    The Dove Shack - Summertime in the LBC! West Coast classic!
